Prince dead at 57

04.21.2016

Prince, the singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and actor/performer, was found dead in his home earlier this morning. His publicist confirmed this, stating that, "It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57." There are no other details at this time and the cause of death has not been released.

Having released music as early at 1978, Prince delivered his unique blend of rock, R&B, soul, funk, hip hop, disco, psychedelia, jazz, and pop for nearly 40 years. Of course, he also had a large film presence having acted in films such as PURPLE RAIN and UNDER THE CHERRY MOON and even directing the latter. His music has been used for countless films, but his most popular contributions would most likely be for Tim Burton's BATMAN.

As you no doubt have noticed, everyone has pouring their hearts out on social media over this loss, and we here at JoBlo are no different. You'd be hard-pressed to find someone who hasn't enjoyed or been touched by something Prince has taken part of, and we'll forever treasure that. Rest in peace.

I haven't listened to much of Prince other than Purple Rain or Raspberry Beret, but I have much respect for Prince for being the very definition of artist. 2016 has been awful for music.

first Bowie now Prince!

so sad! I read online that his plane had made an emergency landing, and he cancelled a few concerts because he wasn't feeling well. The police later found him dead in his home.

Batman soundtrack on Vinyl ALL NIGHT

Don't care if it drives my wife crazy. It must be done. The Batman soundtrack is my absolute favorite movie soundtrack and Prince album.

I have hardly heard anything about Chynas passing. I'm afraid this will be like when Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson passed. Only difference is Chyna wasn't wildly known like Farrah

R.I.P.

I met Prince Memorial Day weekend 10 years ago during my time working nightclub security in Vegas. I was actually working his concert he put on to promote his 3121 album that weekend. First off he was the first male Diva I ever met. So much so I wanted to kick his ass cuz of How he looked at me when I was posted in his green room. But made myself laugh thinking of that Chappelle show skit. Crazy story. But even through all that the man had a serious talent and knew how to put on a show. Cant

Really cool story...truly...it's always nice to hear when a celebrity passes someone who came across them and get to see their real personality for better or worse...an amazing talent nonetheless.

Dude I also met both Michael Clarke Duncan and Robin Williams. And my interaction with both of them will be just as memorable as my interaction with Prince.

Shame that in an article praising his life and contributions, you use a clip of music that he has denounced and absolutely refused to include in his discography. RIP Prince.

I think about this scene every-time I think of Prince. I don't want to. I want to think of his iconic performances, I want to think of him playing the half-time Superbowl majestically in torrential rain, I want to think of his incredible guitar playing, his iconic looks and showmanship...
But no, it's always Jack Nicholson flailing around like a prat.
I love this scene.
